Chess is a complex strategic game, called ‘brain gymnastics’. There are a number of techniques and methods to play this game. The Sicilian Defence, the opening of the game, is the favourite debut of many chess players.

The Sicilian defence is an offensive strategy. It is performed by black pieces. The difference between this debut and the others is that the blacks are not only fighting for a draw, but for a victory. There are disadvantages to every strategy in chess. The downside is that white pieces are often the first to take advantage, so blacks have to counterattack without wasting time.
